How to pay into your current account
You can pay into your current account at a Nationwide branch, by bank transfer, by using a cash machine found inside or directly outside of a Nationwide branch, or by post with cheques.
You can pay in any amount over the counter with your current account card or with identification like your passport or driving licence.
You can also pay in coins or cash, but please check our page before you visit to find out what we can accept.
If another person wants to pay you, they’ll need to make a transfer from their own account using your name, sort code and account number.
From another account
Anyone — including you — can pay into your current account using an account with another building society or a bank. The sender will need:
